NORMAN — Oklahoma junior defensive lineman Chuka Ndulue was arrested early Saturday morning on a complaint of driving under the influence, according to OU Police Lt. Bruce Chan.
Campus police pulled Ndulue over around 2:46 a.m. at the intersection of E. Lindsey Street and McKinley Avenue, Chan said.
Police detained Ndulue, who was then booked at the Cleveland County Detention Center. He was released around 9 a.m.
Ndulue appeared in all 13 of Oklahoma's games last season, recording a team-high five sacks. He's one of only four returning starters on the Sooners' defense, and the only defensive lineman back with any significant game experience.
“We are aware of the matter and the situation will be handled internally,” said an OU Athletics spokesperson.
This spring, OU coaches moved Ndulue inside to defensive tackle to deal with depth issues there.
Arrests such as these have typically resulted in one-game suspensions under coach Bob Stoops.
